What part of town you are in? So, I could write you a ticket without beating you like Rodney King.

I remember the first time I rode a sportbike and the rush you get. I think that rush would be 10x more on a shifter kart buzzing down our freeways, flying over the ship channel or around the loop. lol.


T-Rex is almost the same.

Different strokes...

I don't see the fun in taking one of those on an interstate. Now, some of the Arkansas roads, that's a different story...

I wanted to do something kinda like that. Although it involved my Raptor and an R1 motor. They sell street race tires/suspension for Raptors. Rather have that cause personally those shifter carts look like rough rides

Still love the video though

What would prevent one from legalizing a shifter kart? Other than lights, signals, etc., would it be the crash worthiness?

I know you can't legalize 4 wheelers here because they can't meet crash test standards - would this same problem be encountered with a shifter?

They might also be too low to the ground.

How does a T-Rex meet code?

They are rough on streets, and the seat scrapes very easily, but it's still fun as to tear up the streets a bit in a shifter. Neighbors/motorists hate it and it's asking for a load of trouble, but fun if you don't get caught.
